Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day 6

Hello, everyone!  It's Day 6 of the Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! I just can't help myself - I love making coffee and tea cards, especially when they include a cat or a cute critter! Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome two new followers - fairyhollowcreations Marsden and Kelly Deal - thank you for joining me! 

Are you participating in the Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog HopYou still have time! Just link up a newly created fall-themed project that focuses on coffee, tea, or cocoa. The linky is open until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on Friday, October 2. Hope to see you there! And remember... it's a blog hop, so commenting is encouraged and greatly appreciated!


Today I've used a cute kitty peeking out of a stack of teacups from Super Sponsor Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Feline Great. I coloured the image with watercolor markers, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape.  I used a craft knife to cut inside the cup handles. The white background is embossed with Darice - Leaves Assorted Patterns. I hand-cut a number of banners from patterned paper scraps (Doodlebug) and stamped a fun sentiment from The Greeting Farm - Tea-riffic clear stamps. Lastly I added a metallic leaf as an accent.
